Mrs. McKenna McKay Guest Post: 5 Minute Face

Hi everyone, I'm Kayla's friend McKenna & you can find me over at Mrs. McKenna McKay! Kayla was nice enough to ask me to guest post while she's off gallivanting around in Italy, so let's get this party started, shall we?

Five Minute Face

I'm someone who really, really enjoys my sleep and really, really doesn't enjoy the dreaded early morning wake-up. I tend to hit the snooze button far too many times, which leaves me feeling frazzled & behind when I need to get ready for work. Enter the five minute face! Here we have the products I use to make myself feel a little more put together & pretty in under 5 minutes! 

1. Undereye Concealer: I've got the eye bags, guys. Nothing says I overslept & hate mornings more than dark under eyes! I like Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Eraser because it's also great to fix dark spots on my face when I'm in a rush. 

2. Matte Bronzer: I am eternally fair skinned, so on days when I don't have time for full coverage makeup or contouring, I just use a fluffy brush & lightly sweep it all over my face. NYC's "Sunny" is perfectly matte. 

3. Blush: I think a pop of blush can really liven up your face. Maybelline Master Glaze in "Coral Sheen" has been my go-to lately, it's great for busy mornings because I can just apply with my fingers. 

4. Mascara: I'll be straight with you all, I don't go many places without at least a little mascara. I have big eyes & I nothing opens them up like some great mascara! You can get away with very minimal makeup with a good mascara. I recently picked up the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes and oh my, I HIGHLY recommend it!

Bonus!

Bonus if you're not already late for work! 1. Eyeliner: It takes a little extra effort, but eyeliner will definitely make your eyes extra smoldery! Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil, need I say more? 2. Lippies: I usually reserve lipstick for full makeup days, but if I'm in a rush & just want to look more put together, a nude or pink lipstick is great! I've been using Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in "Streak" and am obsessed! I hope you like my five minute face routine helps you the next time you curse the morning after waking up late! Thank you again for having me!
